So be sure to enjoy our hop both days, leave comments on all of the blogs each day and check back to see if you won!
(winners will be posted on Wednesday, October 19th on the Unity Blog and Spellbinders Blog)

I'm excited to share my projects with you. I have chosen to use the Blossom Tags and Accents die templates and the Blossom Stackers stamps. For my first card I just did some simple layering. I stamped the largest flower with white ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder then lightly blended some ink over the top. The rest of the layers were just stamped with chalk ink and then layered on top of one another with 3D Foam Squares. Lastly I embellished with some buttons and twine. Oh, and I also snuck in a little black decorative strip that was made using Classic Triple Scallop die templates.


Here's a little close up so you can better see the embossing.


For my second card. I used the same Blossom Tag and Accents Die Templates and the same Blossom Stacker stamps, however on this one I added a stamped scalloped decorative strip made using the Classic Scallop die template. On this one I cut down some the pieces so that they could be layered to create a cascading effect.







Now please head over to Lisa Henke’s blog…


Thank you so much for hopping by today!!!
